SoundPreviewer | Easier sound manipulation

Introducing SoundPreviewer

I always have the same problem, creating sound effects and doing tons of tests to see which one is the best MaxDistance. No longer wanted to do that, so I made this plugin, SoundPreviewer.

SoundPreviewer is a plugin that makes it easier for developers to modify sounds, by using SphereHandleAdornments and BillboardGuis to display the Sound Info in real-time.


How to use this plugin

First of all, install the plugin, once you have it installed, that’s all, every time you select a sound, a sphere will appear around the sound parent containing Sound info like the volume, name, distance, etc…

You can also select multiple sounds and modify them at the same time


By default the plugin will generate a sphere every time you select a sound parented to a BasePart or an Attachment, but if you no longer want to generate an sphere when you select a sound, you can toggle the plugin on and off with the plugin buttons.

Button functions:

Depending on wheter the sound has got an ID or not, the surrounding sphere color will be different, being red if there is no ID or blue if there is a valid ID.


How to get SoundPreviewer

SoundPreviewer is a totally free plugin that anyone can take here:

This is really neat and definitely something I’m going to use in the future. Would you consider adding a feature like draggable points, so that people can adjust the distance of the sound through the plugin?

Yeah, that was on my to-do list, it will still take me a while to implement that feature as it is something I haven’t experimented with yet.

This seems Super useful! Can’t wait to try it out!

Also I would suggest changing the name of “Toggle Preview” to “On/Off” so the user can better understand whats going on.

ever since this new update the plugin has stopped working, I’ve tried everything, reinstalling, click some of the buttons, but no matter what, the UI and ball never come up, do you have any idea on how to fix, or is there a way to go back a version.

Released a patch update, should be fixed now.
